the suspicion that Burns was roughly

prayers reported. They were not fnr

the most solemn act of life. 

2. "xlie habit of prayer" ,5 tlie sav- 
ing art of life. I'royer is an act, hut 
it should become iiabitual. The soul 
neeSG no-arishment daily. Even as the 
•body, needs. meal-tiQ,-«js, so the -.Jtoul- 
needs its hunger to be EppfrnKed. Then 
the soul acids steadying! In the midst

It is tteI! to have regular tlme3 fnr 
praypr, mid .slated places. In this we 
have tits sH>mpl« 01 the -wuiid'B best. 
We think of Mr. Gladstone going 
morning by morning to the parish

one peruapa nurses a terrible desire 
to avenge himBelf o£ his .adversaries. 
Such v?»s the caso with a man when 
ve will call William Jones, who 
'walked down the thoroughfare of :i 
Canadian city only a few months ago. 
Locked in his heart was a deep 
grief, aad" a fleree. hatred of a man

This, in brief, is his story :— 
His sister was in the employ of a 
doctor, and having worked in the fam-

by the members. ■ 

Then one day a 
yuunc man crossed 
her path. They W-

the young man, and 
loved him well, but 
not wisely. Under

had partly hesled he 
sorrow, a 11 u t h -i

with terrible vehemence that liis sis-

At the. bedside was the shocked 
brother of the ami wlio . had :'-ihi=i

to assist ^Yiliieni in. wreaking venge-

'•'I will .keep you. informed oi liU

follow him till you run him-dowa, and 
then— shoot hiru." 

With this terrible pn:-pnp-" «: vi;v.-, 
and n-lyifs on the promised ai>Ristar.ce 
of his friend, William set cut »u !ii H -

to listen, and was attracted to the Eal-

He held out for months, but came to

There are two things, among many, - 
that I would pt'isH uu to the "euders -of

■ Current Matters, 



The Salvation Army' extends its 
deepest sympathy to the Governor- 
Geiierai and his family at the s;cd 
loss thoy have sustained in the death 
of the eldest daughter of His Excel- 
lency Eari Grey-^the Lady Victoria 
GrenMl— who died at Government 
House on Feb. 4th, oi typhoid fevur. 
It is thought she contracted the dis- 
ease while traveling with her husband. 
Cant. GrenleH, in Mexico, The bio^ 
will Lie felt all the more keenly as 
having parsed the critical Et&ge it was 
iho-jsLt eho would be safe. All ths 
members of the vice-regal party were 
present when the end came. Never 
before has 6ueb grief happened to an 
becupant of Ridna« Hal!, '.he Govern- 
ment House. But death, as the Com- 
missioner remarks elsewhere, is no 
rp-Rjactor of-persons of places; the rich 
and the poor alike hnv? to p^s r.-« sy. 
If, therefore, behoves us all to hu 
ready to meet God.

"St. Catherines, Ont.. Jan. 30th.—

years, was found, rfesd On Monday 
evening in his roem in a. house in

on entering the house found that the

MONG the heroes of faith and 
self-=aerificc, few are more 

J~ S conspicuous on the dark 
I back-gron nrj of 2 tscksliuuL-n 
age than Jeremiah — known . 
amongst his own nation as thp. w..epr 
iiii,- Prophet. 

■Yet this man's peiaonaliiy seems to ■ 
make these veiy virtues standout in 
bolder relief, ng if to witness what 
God can do with, nnd make of, the 
-weakest and most unlikely iiuman 
characters when completely surrend- 
ered to Him in unquestioning obed- 

Called- as a child to n- supremely- 
Divine mission, almost the first trait 
nutii-eabiB in him is that of timidity, 
shyiiHsg, a shrinking back in dismay 
from try;. t=Ei: imputed; thai amounted 
-to positive fear. 

Altlic-iigli u£ priestly pedigree, and 
therefore blessed with higher advant- 
«g?5 of education, and opportunities 
for study than the eommon people of 
his day, the idc-e of a public ministry 
doe3 not seem to have been fostered in 
his young heart ns his. most likely 

Jtremieh'E SsrisHi'-eriHss. 

He- had j\o consciousness whatever - 
that he possessed -any personal power 
or ability, and when God called him to 
be a leader of men, to be in the fore- 
rank of His messengers, Jeremiah's 
extreme sensitiveness almost suggests 
weakness oi chnracter. as he instinc- 
tively recoil? from the thought, and 
exclaims pitifully; "I cannot speak — 
I nm a chiin i_" 

How little did he kiuiw or imagine 
thai. H-iih his nstarai .withdrawing 
ironi pain, suffering, exposure, ridi- 
cule, c-ritiL-ism, failure, and reserves, 
God was goingio demonstrate the power 
that changes weakness into strength,, 
thnt overcomes physical disabilities in 
.the triumphant shewing of that might 
which actually glories in reducing to 
nought things that are, and choosing 
weak things to confound the mighty.

We are not Surprised either, to fiud 
that Jeremiah was a man totally -ti- 
socaiil ui ihe- spirit of .vindictiveneBS. 

Had he been naturally of a spiteful 
character God oould not have chosen 
him to be the messenger- 6f reprooE , 
and judpment. 

Jll-Bttlng would it has been were 
Ms hearers able to detect in him any 
lurking suspicion of gloating delight r s 
he proclaimed the warning knell of ' 
doom and destruction in their unwi'l- ■ 

ing ears. 

Striving to BSes» : . 

God saw hi him a man with quick- 
ened sensibilities to pain and sorrow. 
A man whose very nature v.— ir,fub;u 
und running uver with melting com- 
passion, One who whilst faithful to 
the last, ceased not to intreat with 
■weeping. eyes. A sympathetic man, 
patient and long-suffering. Sparing 
not to repeat the mesEaKe o'or nnd 
o'er with 'insistancc, "leading not 
only iviiii, but for the people. Making 
their siiik end Horrovsa- his own in 
intercessory ministry,so that even wjisn 
his message was spurned and dis- 
obeyed, and ehnnee to escape the 
doom of the sinful people was offered 
him from high authority, he utterly, rn- 
fused to leave Ms people in'thoir pun- 
ishment, but shared their lot and mis- 
ery, striving still to bless, cheer, und 
encourage them, ot the expense oi ilia 
own comfort and safety. 

Such was Jeremiah. God's WKsrior 
mid standard-bearer, in the darkest 
p.-ige of His people's history. 

Oh, how men^oi his 3inmp are need- 
ed to-day ! Men to love, pity, sympit- 
thize, and plead, whilst they unsheath 
the Sword of the Spirit, declaring The 
whole counsel of God. 

How the Lord backed him, fitted 
lnm, 3«du?d him, touched him, com- 
missioned him, nnd the nature of nis 
niission/etc., we must reserve for an- 
other -week. 


A member of the party carrying mail 
from Edmonton to Hcrschel Island, 
writes s. letter in which lie says: — 

"At Herschcl Island the Eskimos 
have seven or cisht wives apiece and 
trade them off with one another. There 
is no marriage ceremony performed, 
but whenever a lloskie trades n wife 
and receives another man's wife in

How IJsgar Siree! Corps K< 
vived the Saturday High* 


Saturday night meetings at Lisgar 
St., Toronto, as in some other places, 
had w-aned in interest, so Capt, Mc- 
Fetrick set himself t& work to increase 
the popularity of the meetings, and 
this is how he did it :— 

He invited all his bandsmen to co- 
operate with him, announced. that the 
meetings on. Saturday nights would 
henceforth take a new form. They ■ 
would have music, lota of it, with a .; 
bright, interesting G^pel address,, 
and a few good songs. Coffee and cake 
iv'utiid also play an important part in : 
the proceedings, nnd be distributed at 
the close of the meeting. 

The bandsmen caught on to the 
scheme, the soldiers were interested, ' 
and a new era began for the corps. 

The barracks now presents un ani- 
mated scene on Saturday nights. In- 
stead of about two dozen, people, there 
is now an of about 200, 
and everything is bright, cheerful nnd 
lively. People are interested, snd, 
therefore, th^y want to come; it is a 
delight for most of them to be there. 

At- a meeting attended by a War 
Cry representative there was' a special 
iiio oi musicians eiiEueed for the even- ' 
ing. Willi the aid of the band they 
kept things going lively for about nn 
hour mid a half. The Captain held 
the reins of the meeting throughout, 
and by his skilful handling of matters* 
absolutely forced everyone present to 
thoroughly enjoy themselves. There 
was no drag, no hitch, and no gloom 
about the thing, and the popularity oe 
the service was evidenced by the in- 
terested and enthusiastic crowd pres-

the majority of the audience were 
young men and women. The collec- 
tion, too, was verv grntifving. With- 
oui any difficulty whatever tliv sum of 
ten dollars was raised. The people- 
seemed glad to give to a prosperous . 
and growing cause, and ?evernl dollar 
bills and fifty cent pieces wore noticed 
on the nle.te. 

The spiritual results of the meetings 
are nlsu pood, as far as we enn judge. 

The meetings vary in character 
every Saturday night, and new fea- - 
turCK are introduced each week. 

We hope many other corps in the 
Dominion will follow suit.

seized eo many people of 10-

This criminal traffic has infe^o". 
iiciiij every pood-siwd tnun jr. <j-_e 
country, end the "game" in in the 
bands of a lew crooks, who pass off 
as respectable men. 

Owing to the barriers which they 
have built up around themselves and 
their vile dens- the authorities hove 
always iound it difficult to suppress 
gambling which takes place at pool- 
rooms and race tracks, and it has be- ■ 
..come a canter on our national life, 
affecting to a greater or lesser degree 
nearly every house in the land. 

Every good wife or mother, every 
honorable and clean-minded man 
should do Hisir utmost to protect the 
nation from this terrible evil, find 
»ave its sons and daughters Irons 
being caught in the meshes oi the 
"gambling spiders" v !'--- make s- busi- 
ness of feeding on human credulity ■ 
and cupidity. 

The writer of the ariicle first, givss 
his own impressions about the matter, 
alter he had iuve^tiguled ii iuiiy, una 
eays as follows:— 

Trail oi the Vampire. 

"In striking the trail "i the ra«a 
truck and pool-room vampires, for ihe 
iivst time I begnu Lo see riie w"ds;i 
embodied in the rigorous laws against 
belling on iiorse-rneing that are found 
in most States in this country. T begin 
to see tvhv the law makes of the book- 
maker a criminal ; why it makes places 
where pools nn races are sold common 
gambling houses, and \iUy ii stigma- 
tizes the race Lrack owner ami his 
crowd oi 'sure tiling' pambleis. 
crooks, touts, and eiifiiiiini riff-rufi as 
a menace to tile public weal." 

The first tiling, he says, which in- 
vestigations vi-ns a word oi four letters 
— D-O-P-K. This word is ns nulling 
ns the word "graft," and has a very 
sOa-tio =ig:;ifjca::L-j. In the p teeing sense 
dope means the benumbing influence 
that the racf-fambling passion has on 
the brain oi its victims. It utterly, 
perverts then common -sense, and in 
spits of the ict that, the advertise* 
incuU inform i ig you that for a dollar 
you can nm< ?ase it tip on a "sure 
thing," are it: ads on their faces, they 
continue to blindly venture their 
money on ther. ■■. The eiiects of "dope 
are similar to ihe effects of narcotics, 
and put the gullible victims who swal- 
low them into a state of dreamy ex- 
pectancy tl>»* hey are going to win 
large sums of .lOuey. Thus tr.cre arc 
dope "ads," iope " newspapers, and 
"donesters," o men who s p ]l fraud- 
ulent iniorm; ion concerning the

thBt he was making a tidy thing out 
of his still. The™ wee a time, he said, 
when h« cane to his pitch at six iu 
the evening, and between that time 
and midniaht, « r ou!d take a 8'jvercign. 
From midnight to Seven o'clock he 
v/anld tale, say, i,oin thirty shillings 
to forty shillings. Thus im aighiiy 
turnover weuld average about £3. Bat 
now, ow'ri-'iHjj-the fact that he could 
not starfWsiEess before midnight, hia 
takingB vfould not average more than 
£1 per night. He included tobacco 
and cigarettes ia his sales.

'Summer-time is by Jar the best 
Ksasoii of the year for business. This 
-is because work is more plentiful; ariu 
oorisequsntlypeople have more moriey 
to spend. Besides, raore people are to 
be iottuii otsf- during tho warm summer 
■iiiU'lats than, on Ihe wet, cold nights of 

- 5=rhap3 there is hardly a belter 
point of vantage to be found anywhere 
from which to study the seamy side 
•of soeisly. than behind the counter of 
a coSee-stall. Vice, naked and un- 
ashamed, resorts thither; the criminal- 
on v hi3 errands ■ of plunder makes a 
stop there: the r)>ki= d-tiuchec 
lcJls against the coffee-splashed count- 
er; while the poor homeless -wretch 
Iretruems it in the hope that some 
generous customer will give him or her 
the price of & nun' of coffee. Here a 
portion of poor humanity stands, 
stripped of all conventionalism— is 
seen iis it TBniiy is', and 'h.e sight is nou- 

The misery is often relieved by 
gleams of ieilow-ieeliili! exhibited by 

are worse oS !hnn themselves. « a 
remember iu the early dawn of a suni- 
mer day taking a. cup of coffee at a stall 
■when a burly, bustliuts son oi toil came 
along. "Give us a cup of coffee and a 
hegg, guv-nor!" ^claimed he. 
keeper complied with his request. But 
standing in closs proximity was a 
cadaverous creature, clad in ragged, 
nroasr clothes— = most wretched ob- 
ject. ThB son o! toil locked ?t the 
■iujccb u£ misery, and then turning to 
ins Oi«"iec-i.ii'ii keeper sniri : "Fur 
Christ's sake give this bloko a cup of 

"'he sun of toil carnishir-fl' his eon-.' 
versntiou v.';*.!: a plentiful supply ' f 
profane epithets, which clearly showed 
that he did not profess to be r- follow- 
er -oi Him in whose asusis ho gave the 
cup of coffee, but wc could not help 
thinking that He who had said "A crip 
of Cold water given in My name shall 
not lose its reward;" accepted i:is gift 
as a Ciiristiy deed.
